Andre Marcell, Director
Andre began his career as an editor at Tapestry Productions. As lead editor he helped shape ad campaigns for Transformers, GI Joe and My Little Pony to name a few. He started directing in 1995 and helped promote successful brands such as Star Wars figures, Cabbage Patch Dolls, Fijit Friends, Mighty Beans and Tyco RC. Andre is now one of the top directors working on kid and toy commercials in the country. “When working with kids you have to have fun with them and use your energy to energize them. When creating a spot, if you want your audience to be excited when viewing it, you have to be excited when making it.” “I grew up on the ocean. Rip Tide was named after my love of the sea. I am continually awestruck by its combination of beauty, power and unpredictability. It has always inspired me in my work.”
